I have never partied - never smoked a cigarette in my life and never had an alcoholic drink (or drugs of any kind). Again, you need to be informed before making generalizations. One has to pay into social security and Medicare to receive the benefits. And, although I am certain there is some fraud, as in every program, I know many people on social security disability who fought long and hard for benefits after being diagnosed with several cancers and other life threatening conditions - they were not simply handed the benefits. They had to PROVE their disability. It is easy to make incorrect assumptions when you don't have the facts...
